How Nano Measurement Can Be Used in Dimensional Analysis

Dimensional analysis involves the comparison of a manufactured part or component to the specifications defined by engineering drawings, digital files and 3D CAD models, or a master tool or part. Historically, the scale of measurement capability has ranged from very large (airplane wings and automobile contours) to the micro level (printed circuit boards and micro electronics).
